In France, condoms will be available for prescription in the fight against AIDS, said French health minister Agnes Buzy today. Doctors will be able to prescribe a special condom mark, as the minister has not indicated.
As she explained, the health services distributed a positive opinion about the prescription of cheap prescription condoms. According to the minister, now everyone, young people, sick people, women and men will go to their doctor who will be able to prescribe free condoms.
"Each year we discover 6000 new cases of HIV infection, especially in adolescents, between 800 and 1000 cases under 25 years, who often use condoms at first intercourse and later no longer" said the minister.
